Google Cloud aims squarely at enterprise with Velostrata acquisition

May 14, 2018


Google is set to acquire enterprise cloud migration provider Velostrata, citing the Israel-based company’s ‘technical strength’ as key alongside potential capabilities for their customers around advanced data analytics and machine learning.

Velostrata’s primary goal is to speed up enterprise’s cloud transitions through what it calls ‘real-time agentless workload streaming’ – in other words, decoupling compute from storage without an effect on performance. Theoretically, workloads can transfer to the public cloud in minutes, whether migrating entire data centres or working in a hybrid cloud environment.
